Missions

Missions2

Mt. Pleasant is strongly committed to fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, as well as his Great Commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves. Because of this, we tithe as a congregation, 10% of what comes into our offering plate goes back out again through local, regional, and international mission efforts.


Choices Pregnancy Services

Mt. Pleasant has a longstanding history of supporting women and children, and places a high value on human life.  Choices Pregnancy Services offers women who face challenging life circumstances free pregnancy tests and sonograms, education on all options available to them, hope, and ongoing support.  In 2016 alone, Choices helped over 200 women make the decision to bring their child into the world despite their hardships.  Mt. Pleasant is proud to partner with Choices in this work for the Kingdom.


Allegheny Valley Schools

Mt. Pleasant is pleased that we are able to minister to the local Allegheny Valley Schools. We love to visit with, and be visited by, the Patterson Ladies, the Mayhue men, and the
Green Garden Girls. We are especially pleased to see our children minister in the group homes through Children’s Choir.


Betesda Church, Lepaterique, Honduras

For several years Mt. Pleasant mission teams have traveled to this remote city in Honduras to partner with our sister congregation in the tremendous ministry taking place there. We have been able to assist Pastor Omar and the Honduran church in their work of evangelizing their region by helping with building renovation and new construction, assisting in a feeding program, an educational program, and a job development program.


Beth Knapp, Wycliffe Bible Translators

The Bible is a precious gift. It is God’s Word and it changes lives. We take for granted the blessing of having the Bible in our own language. Not everyone is blessed in this way. There are those who desperately need the scriptures, and Wycliffe Bible translators is a missions organization committed to seeing that they get them. We have partnered with Beth Knapp to help enable her to bring God’s Word to those living in Central Africa – Cameroon and the Central African Republic (among other places).

Bill and Debby Bosley, New Tribes Mission

Mount Pleasant has been part of the support team for Bill and Debby Bosley for decades. They serve in Senegal, West Africa, primarily through administrative responsibilities to help coordinate the mission work of many missionaries in that part of the world. This includes publishing materials, aiding in passports for missionaries, helping with medical needs (Debby is also a nurse), and a great variety of other responsibilities. New Tribes is a missions organization committed to bringing the gospel to those people groups who have never been reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ.


Denny Ugoletti, Prison Chaplain, Beaver County Jail

Jesus tells the parable of the sheep and the goats and praises the sheep because “I was in prison and you visited me.” Our prisons are continuing to swell with lost souls who desperately need the good news of Jesus Christ, the words of life that can transform them not only for this life, but for eternity. We are happy to partner with Denny, who has dedicated his life to reaching “the least of these.”

Uncommon Grounds Cafe

Uncommon Grounds Café is a remarkable ministry. It is a great place to eat (good food, cheap), a warm and comfortable space, a good cup of coffee. But it is more than that. It is a sign of hope in the heart of the city of Aliquippa. It is a place of convergence for many different churches and ministries who desire to connect with the people of the city. It is a place where relationships are built, help is provided, and the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ shines forth. Our Christmas Eve offering will be used to help further the ministry of the Café.
